What makes the perfect hair jig
So, what is it that makes these Rabid Baits hair jigs just right? To fully understand that question we need to understand everything that goes into fishing a hair jig. In my personal experience and many top pros can agree that a hair jig needs to be thrown on a long moderate action rod with light line. Typically, when you pull your hair jig out the fish are in some type of funk, be it pre spawn, post spawn, or even in the winter months. These situations call for very long cast to get your bait out away from the boat. To obtain that you need a 7 foot to 7’6” spinning rod and really light line. I will typically throw a hair jig on 12lb braid down to a longer 30-foot 6lb fluorocarbon leader. With light line, long casts, and smallmouth you’re going to need a moderate action rod for better hook up ratios and to ensure they stay pinned!
